The Knot, the one-stop wedding planning solution for brides with a national magazine and website, has selected Hello Productions to plan its upcoming networking event, taking place in Pittsburgh in June. Their Cocktails & Connections Networking Event serves as a thank you party for all of the event professionals they work with as well as an opportunity for Pittsburgh’s finest in the event industry to network and exchange ideas with one another.
A sexy red, black and white décor will transport attendees back in time to an evening in the 1920s (think: The Great Gatsby), when a speakeasy was the place to be. Hello Productions will be handling the planning for this event, but we couldn’t do it without the help of the fabulous vendors who are offering their products and services as well.
On this evening in June, the Mansion at Maple Heights will be the setting for the event. The Mansion at Maple Heights, located in Shadyside, is a renovated turn-of-the-century residence, originally built in the early 1900s. It houses a bed and breakfast and several beautiful spaces perfect for a wedding or event. Stained glass windows, hardwood floors and a grand master staircase all add to the ambiance of this space.
Guests will mingle amongst one another and “characters,” including flapper girls, while sipping the signature cocktail, “The Flapper,” provided by Clique Vodka. Those with a palate for wine can enjoy a tasting in the Study of the mansion provided by Engine House 25 Wines.
La Crème will be providing bite-sized hors d’oeuvres and several food stations set up around the space. All Occasions will be providing the rentals, including furniture to create a lounge atmosphere, and the linens, adding color to each room, will be provided by Mosaic. Bill Chisnell will be providing floral arrangements, lamps and some additional décor to really bring the theme to life.
In addition to the lighting, Wenning Entertainment will be providing music to keep the crowd entertained throughout the evening and Lee Terbosic will be entrancing guests with his strolling magician act.
To end the night on a sweet note, Vanilla Pastry will be providing bite-sized desserts to be served by the flapper girls.
